China is one of few countries in the world that have nuclear weapons. As the prospect of nuclear weapons being used has become a pertinent worry following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Express.co.uk takes a look into China’s nuclear arsenal.
What nuclear weapons does China have?
China has a range of nuclear weapons, even if it has a comparatively small arsenal – but exactly what they have is unknown.
Among these are the Dongfeng-5, a single warhead with a range of 13,000km.
China is estimated to have around 18 of these, but the last estimate was provided in 2000.
